Further study details as provided by Ipsen:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Assessment of the risk of new or worsening valvular regurgitation in any valve by echocardiography at baseline & 12 months

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Assessment of the risk of new or worsening valvular regurgitation in any valve by echocardiography at baseline & 6 months
  • Risk in each of the 4 valves at 6 & 12 months
  • Risk of significant regurgitation in each valve at 6 & 12 months
  • Prevalence of valvular regurgitation at baseline
  • Assessment of GH and IGF-1 levels at baseline, 6 months & 12 months

Estimated Enrollment: 200
Study Start Date: May 2003
